Does the job better than expected...
on December 19, 2011
I'm a beginner when it comes to beading. And when I found an easier way to finish my pieces I was thrilled, though a little skeptical. But when I finally received the crimping pliers along with the crimp beads I went straight to my desk to try it out. I couldn't believe how easy and flawlessly it worked. First you have to place the crimp bead in the second inner form of the pliers and bite down. It creates a "c" shape and then you slide to the form nearest to the nose of the pliers. With some pressure you get a nicely crimped bead that holds tightly around a thin flexible wire, which is what I used, but I have seen it also used with knotted thread on some of the gemstone jewelry I had received as gifts in the past. The point is these pliers work great and are great quality from what I can tell. I can't imagine they would ever brake considering what a delicate job they were made to do in the first place. If this is something you need for your jewelry making, don't hesitate buying them, you won't regret it.
